Mutton Gravy | Mutton Kuzhambu

It is again a must diwali morning dish with Idly.Can't forget those days.Atleast for this reason need to have a vacation during diwali time.We used to grind the masala in flat grinding stone(ammi kallu). It was also easy to grind the poppy seeds with it.of course all the effort was paid off by the awesome taste.
Lately I have started to use the halal mutton and think it is really good.There is taste difference between frozen stuff and fresh mutton.This is one dish which needs to be cooked carefully.Overcooking may turn the mutton chewy..Mostly people do not marinate the mutton for this dish..but I do it that way and it is tastes really good.

This is a Spicy Mutton Gravy. To increase the quantity you can potatoes and enhances the taste too.

I prefer marinating the mutton meat before cooking too, it absorbs the flavours much more and tastes great!!! delicious curry!!!
